For months I've been seeing Five Guys pop up everywhere. I looooove a good burger and fries so in my mind I was already there when I found one near my daughter's school in downtown Brooklyn. I kept telling her I was gonna come and pick her up from school and we would go to Five Guys. Well I actually didn't get a chance to try Five Guys until her last parent/teacher conference a few weeks ago.
When we went it was somewhere around eight or nine at night because the parent/teacher conferences lasted so long. There was a line even at that hour so I figured this must be a pretty good spot. We both ordered the regular burger and regular fries, which we didn't know came in a "little" size until after we had ordered. I guess our excitement got the best of us and we didn't completely read the menu.
Both the burger and fries were huge but oh so delicious. I did notice however that there were peanuts and peanut shells everywhere as they sell them in bulk . So the chances of me ever returning to Five Guys with my entire family because of this since my son has a tree nut allergies. But the meal was great and the price was right, it was a good time for us.
